Well the day is finally here we are leaving today for Ethiopia. The time has come to bring our boy home. Before I go I want to thanks everyone for all the love, support and prayers through this journey. Our next post will be from home as a family of 3. I would love to tell you that i'm calm cool and collected right now but umm well i'm not gonna lie so we'll leave it at that.
So last night I had a dream about Noah Tamirat. He was speaking words Ok maybe it was amarhic baby babble that I translated into words the only thing I remember that he said was "I not Noah , I Tamirat" What does that mean?? No idea we know that he recognizes his name maybe at this age it will be hard for him to learn a new one we'll work on it slowly.
Another cool story. I have a watch that has duel time settings so I wanted to leave one on american time and put the other on Ethiopian time. This morning when I went to put the second time setting on ethiopian time it was already set correctly with the exception of the date...a god-incidence perhaps..I think he's telling us its time to go and get our son.
A few things you can pray for while we are gone
1. safe flights for us and the other traveling families this week there are 7 familes all togeather and i think 8 kids coming home. Two of them older boys.
2. That God has prepared Noah's heart to accept us as his parents
3. For me specifically to control my emotions when I meet Noah Tamirat for the first time. I think it might be a little scary to him if i'm crying hysterically.
And now i'm off on and Ethiopian adventure.
